An Art Exhibit by

Janet Lee Wright

Art by Janet Lee Wright

Janet Lee Wright remembers always drawing and painting. Drawings and coloring were her favorite pastimes from earliest childhood. While a busy family life and library career kept her from painting for years, since retiring in 2006, she has indulged her passion with joy.

“At first, I only wanted to paint people; portraits were the ultimate puzzle. But now, living here in this beautiful, natural place, I find myself painting "portraits" of flowers and trees. The Shenandoah Valley is itself an unending source of inspiration.”

Janet uses watercolor and acrylics to capture and express her feelings. She is a signature member of the Shenandoah Valley Watercolor Society, and has won numerous awards in regional exhibitions. Her plans are to paint for as long as she can lift a brush. Her work may also be viewed on her website: JanetLeeWright.com.
